Eltex Yarn Expert -Tufting

Yarn fault detection for tufting machines.

EYE Compact

EYE for tufting uses the Compact yarn sensors. These robust sensors are constructed in metal housings and can easily be mounted and connected with modular connectors. Up to 96 sensors can be connected to the Master control unit, and with a slave unit 96 more sensors can be connected. Because of this the EYE Compact system can meet most machine configurations, weather it’s for carpet or grass tufting.

On the Operator terminal sensor parameters can be set for different groups of yarns with automatic addressing of all the system parts. All events are logged in real time which can be useful for statistics and diagnostics. This information can be networkable to a central database from an Ethernet connection on the Master control unit.

  • 100% of Tufting Yarn Breaks / End Outs detected
  • Can be fitted on machines with a 1/10″ gauge
  • The sensors use the well proven piezoelectric principle
  • Faulty yarn is specifically identified, resulting in more up-time
  • The sensors are normally fitted between the feed rollers and the needles

“100% detection of Tufting Yarn
Breaks and End Outs”

EYE Compact II

EYE Compact II is the latest developed sensor from Eltex of Sweden and is 1/3 in size compared to the EYE Compact. It is ideal to mount on more modern machines that are graphics driven,  where space can be limited. This gives the operator a better access.

  • EYE Compact II can be mounted above or beneath puller rollers
  • Eyelet diameter is 4 mm compared to 6,5 mm for Compact
  • 100% of Tufting Yarn Breaks / End Outs detected.
  • Can be fitted on machines with a 1/10″ gauge
  • The sensors use the well proven piezoelectric principle
  • Faulty yarn is specifically identified, resulting in more up-time

Operator Terminal 11797 P180-768

Operator Terminal

The touch screen operator terminal has a very user-friendly interface. The number of yarns in operation and position of yarn fault are clearly displayed

Master Control Unit

The master control unit communicates with the sensors and the operator terminal. It processes all the data and gives stop and lamp indication signals when a yarn fault occurs.
